Representatives of some of those killed in the Lockerbie bombing are challenging the conviction of the man found guilty of blowing up the flight.

Libyan Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted of causing the deaths of the 270 people killed in the attack on Pan-Am Flight 107, which happened in 1988.

But some of the families believe he was innocent, and have been at the High Court in Edinburgh to pursue an appeal against his conviction.

Al-Megrahi died three years ago and the court is being asked to decide if legal proceedings could continue without his family's involvement.
